This is the story of a technology-savvy serial killer who displays his graphic murders on his own website. The FBI Internet Crimes division must work quickly to track him down.
Despite Diane Lane's earnest effort, Untraceable manages to be nothing more than a run-of-the-mill thriller with a hypocritical message.
You know something ain't kosher when a movie purporting to offer a critique of sadistic voyeurism opens with a hand-rubbing scene of kitten abuse.
Untraceable feels sleazy and gratuitous.
For all the would-be with-it cyber/techno-speak, strip that all away, and Gregory Hoblit's film is completely stale and cliched thriller nonsense.
Morally duplicitous torture porn: how else to describe Untraceable, a bleak, rain-washed horror thriller.
Untraceable demonstrates, once again, how unnecessary it is for audiences actually to understand technical jargon.
Untraceable is a thriller with a heavy moral compass which shines a bright light on internet ethics.
This joyless thriller runs the gamut from unconscionable through unwatchable to unendurable. It's also unfathomable that two talented people, Diane Lane and her director, Gregory Hoblit, got themselves involved in such an unpromising enterprise.
Untraceable really is disgraceable.
Untraceable boasts a respected director (Gregory Hoblit of Fracture and Primal Fear), and a popular movie star (Diane Lane) but it's still about people getting tortured to death.
